Oh what the heck...

apologies, only have iphone pics of luggage, DB windscreen -

All the bags are mounted w/ SW Motech mounts from Twisted Throttle.  These cases were used, and about 1/2 the price of new bags, so the mounts are not the body hugging, "lower profile" side case mounts.  I'm thinking I may need outboard red / green flashing lights  Lol

Haven't been to this site for awhile. New mods include the top case, LSL bars, and a modification to the Laminar Lip.

Does anyone know if the PLX only side case carriers are compatible with the SW motech top box carrier?  It looks like I will need the European tail cover, but the top box carrier will replace the grab rail.  There are no instructions on the sw motech site for the side carriers so I am wondering how they mount and if that will prevent the top box carrier from mounting there as well.

Man I love that color.  Inlove

Did the spacers for the Laminar Lip help?

What do you guys reckon your ST mode ZX-14's weigh compared to a stock C14? What other differences would there be?

That's what Motordog has installed in the pictures, so my guess would be they are compatible... Headscratch

Some of us aren't old enough to want that thing.  Maybe when we turn 60 or so...   Lol

A modded out 14 will run circles around the Connie 14.   Plus, it's not all pipe and slippers. Twofinger   More hotrod tourer. Bigok

My guess?  Full of fluids, with empty bags, around 580 pounds for a tour-ready Zed.  Roughly 60 pounds less than the FJR or K1300GT, 100 pounds less than the C-14.  The ST1300 is a big bitch, at 720 pounds, but it also packs nearly 8 gallons of fuel.

What other differences?  Even with Heli risers I'm going to guess that it's a more sporty riding position, no electronic windscreen, no traction control, no tire pressure sensor monitoring, no KiPASS system, no ABS brakes, etc.

My mate's ZX14 set up for touring. Rear pegs lowered for his wife's comfort, pipes custom made to fit lowered pegs and Concours seat.



On the road, touring solo

It looks like the zx14 can make a great touring bike. What is it like in parking lots and low speed situations? I am a one bike guy and ride daily to work, store, and errands etc. It seems kinda funny asking about slow speeds on one of the most powerful bikes but you can't go wide open all the time.

They have great low speed handling. You can easily putz around in first at idle for tight maneouvering, then pull away smoothly.

Different.  Smoother.  Less brutish on the low end.  More civilized.  Just as fast.  I don't think you could go wrong with either, but I'm very happy with my choice:

  It has four quality projection lamps for headlights and vibration free mirrors, better than anything else OEM. That makes it better right off the bat.  A rear grab handle and a centerstand just add to its lead as a tourer.

People crib a lot about hayabusa brakes. Thats the only beef I have heard not to say the beluga whale looks. ZX-14 is more like a blue whale though - prettier than the beluga  Twofinger

   As an at times daily observer of belugas in the wild, I say belugas are beautiful.
